Diane Chiasson

Diane Chiasson

Chiasson, Diane, age 72 of Grand Étang, Inverness County, passed away peacefully at Sacred Heart Community Health Centre in Chéticamp, N.S. on August 14, 2020 surrounded by her loved ones.  She fought a hard battle with cancer.  Diane was the daughter of the late Severin Leblanc and the late Marie Therese (Lelievre) Leblanc, both of Chéticamp.   She leaves behind her husband of 47 years, Clovis, her children; Nicole, Halifax, Marc (Lucie), Langdon Alberta, Suzanne (Cory Aucoin), St. Joseph du Moine; brothers, Albert (Marcelle), Quebec, Donat (Laurette), Chéticamp; her three granddaughters, Ranelle, Emma and Sophie as well as many nieces and nephews.  Diane was predeceased by her younger siblings, Nicole, Jules and Angele.

She worked as a Registered Nurse for 20 years and for Public Health for 30 years.  In her retirement, Diane took up quilting with which she showed her beautiful talent and perfectionism with much passion.  She made long time friends in two quilting groups; the Celtic Guild and Les Piqueuses du Moine.  Diane was also a very good seamstress, hemming pants and replacing zippers for her family and community friends.

Diane was a loving wife, a wonderful mom and a devoted grandmother to her beautiful granddaughters.  She was a beautiful friend, always ready to lend a hand or a shoulder to lean on. She will be fondly remembered for the many lives she touched with her kind heart and her selflessness.  She will be missed by many.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Paroisse Saint-Joseph, St. Joseph du Moine.

Visitation will be on Tuesday, August 18, 2020 from 6 to 9pm at the Cheticamp Funeral Home, with an open wake. Visitors are required to keep a steady flow of traffic in order to maximize the number of family and friends allowed at the funeral home at one time. Funeral mass will be held on Wednesday, August 19, 2020, at 10:30am, by invitation only, in Église St. Pierre, Chéticamp with Father Pierre Antoine St. Cyr officiating. Burial in St. Joseph’s Cemetery, St. Joseph du Moine. Due to Covid 19, masks are mandatory at both the visitation and funeral.

    Aunt Diane was special to us in many ways. We marvelled at her crafts and handiwork over the years, appreciated her generosity during our visits and in recent times, she happily helped guide me in understanding our family tree and about our Acadian heritage that means so much to us. Our deepest sympathies to Uncle Clovis, and our cousins Nicole, Marc, Suzanne and their families. May she rest in peace.

  • Linda Tokson August 19, 2020 2:43 pm

    Diane was my cousin on my father’s side. Every summer, when I was a kid, my family went home to Cheticamp, and I’d get to visit with Diane and her family. Diane was always taking care of some child, or making sure we were being safe. Later on, she went on to become a nurse, and I heard how caring and hard working she was with all her patients. I saw her with her own family. She was a remarkable person. I was so sorry to hear that she suffered in her battle with cancer. My condolences to you all . May she rest in peace, she will be missed.

  • Sincerely, Janet Burns August 19, 2020 11:43 am

    My sincere condolences to Clovis and family. I too worked with Diane during our Public Health Days on a Special Project which brought a small group of us together in beautiful Cheticamp where Diane extended warm hospitality to us over a period of monthly visits.She was a very dedicated and capable Public Health Nurse and it was a pleasure to have known her. God Bless you all. Rest In Peace Diane.

    Comment bien exprimer mes sentiments d’amitié à une personne qui se doit d’accepter le départ de sa chère épouse: en plus de ça, une femme de la Pointe à cochon qui était devenue une fière Moinause, et comme son mari était toujours au service de sa communauté.

    Que de bons souvenirs de Diane soient pour toi Clovis, une source de réconfort aidant à mieux vivre ces moments sûrement douleureux. Bon courage à toi et à tous les membres de ta famille.

    Philippe et Léona
